Where Should I Place An Idol Of Lord Ganesha At Home Entrance as per Vastu?

Vastu experts prescribe placing Lord Ganesha’s idol either in the west, north-east or north direction. Never let the idol face south because it can do more harm than good. It should never be near a washroom, toilet or against a wall attached to it. A Drishti Ganesh opposite your main entrance wards off all evil from your home.

Which Areas Are Not Advisable To Place Lord Ganesha’s Idol?

Now while Lord Ganesha is considered auspicious you also need to be extra careful of where you place it. Certain areas in your home – underneath a staircase, garages, storerooms, laundry room, bedroom, and bathrooms  – that must be avoided. The reason is simple. These areas radiate bad energy and therefore it is not advisable to place idols of deities here. Vastu experts believe that these vacant areas are inauspicious.

Choose The Right Idol Of Ganapathi according to Vastu 

Choosing the right idol of Lord Ganesha is as important as placing it. An idol with Ganesha in a seated position is ideal according to Vastu experts. This is because it invites calmness, peace and creates a harmonious atmosphere at home. This is also referred to as Lalitasana. On the other hand, you can also place a reclining Ganesha idol if you desire a luxurious, comfortable and rich life.

Is It Okay To Place More Than One Ganesh Idol At Home?

Vastu experts recommend placing just one Ganesha idol at home. It is believed that more than one idol negates the flow of positive energy and overwhelms Riddhi Siddhi. So, avoid more than one idol of Lord Ganesha at home.

What Position Should Lord Ganesha’s Trunk Be At?

You will find plenty of idols of Lord Ganesha, each with its own set of ornate carvings. While it’s easy to get carried away by immediate appeal of the idol you fancy, Vastu experts suggest paying special attention to the position of the trunk. If the trunk directs to the left of Lord Ganesh it symbolises prosperity and happiness. It is believed that when his trunk is towards his right Lord Ganesha will be difficult to appease.
